Wabi Sabi & Here:There Batiks, Marcia Derse's newest release for Windham Fabrics/Anthology Fabrics, will turn even those who've shunned the muddy colors and overly lacy motifs of old-school batiks into ardent batik fans. Derse, an established modern textile artist, brings her hand-painted, hand-drawn aesthetic and a modern palette to these batiks, which are actually also produced by hand. Her geometric-derived designs have a primitive flair, and include irregular dots, windowpane checks, even a pseudo-argyle. Colors sing, with icy blue and aqua, rich pomegranate, mango, various shades of greens and yellow and tonal grays. 100% cotton.
